Nice! I'd have gotten a Chevy though, just my .002.

i got 2500 in rebates and 1500 trade for an 84 ford. price after those were subtracted and sales tax was added was 43. also got ford esp for additional 2700. that extends drivetrain warranty to 5 yrs 75k miles. powerstroke warranty is 5/100k. everything else is 3/36k.

40/20/40 vinly seats and plastic floor for easy cleaning. skid plates in case i run over an suv! going to put power inverter inside wired to battery and big brush guard on front. still got to dig through sofa for enough to put on 12' aluminum dump bed. :D

at least insurance is almost the same each year as my 97 ranger.

its over 7' tall and right now 25' long! the tires have 95psi in them!

thanks for all the complements guys. ive been lookin through the pics on here past few months and have seen a lot of really cool rides. i'll post more when i get everything on it.

oh... i got tired of pulling engines out of chevys every year, and my ranger has never let me down. new big brother is same color inside and out as ranger.

Brian, one word man SWEET.

I'll agree with everyone else that thing is bad ass man & good luck with it.

BTW, It does not matter if it's a Ford, Chevy or Doge they all have good and bad points.
